-mailing us. the new york times is where we'll start, a story by katherine rappel, hopeful sign, output declines at slower pace. this is what the authors have to say this morning. the nation's output shrinks at 1% in the second quarter after contracting at a rate of 6.4% earlier this year, government spending, by the first $787 billion stimulus package propped up activity in the latest quarter and accounted for 20% of the country's output. but consumer spending, which makes up 70% of the overall economic activity has continued to fall as fearful americans save more. many economists express concern about what will happen once government spending lets up if consumers remain worried about losing their jobs and their weakened household finances. again, that from the pages of "the new york times" this morning. looking at it from a different take, "the wall street journal" in its editorial section this morning, here is how they phrase it "poised for a rebound" is how they title it. here are some of the thoughts from some of the folks at the wall street journal this morning. they say put it an

, the recession we faced when i took office was deeper than anyone thought. it told us how close we were to the edge. it revealed that in the last few months, the economy has done better than expected. many suggest that part of this progress is directly attributable to the recovery act. this and the other difficult but important steps we have taken have helped put the brakes on this recession. we took action to stem the spread of foreclosures by helping responsible homeowners they in their homes. we helped to revive the credit markets and open up loans for families and small businesses. we enacted a recovery act that puts tax cuts directly in the pockets of middle-class families, extended unemployment insurance for people who lost their jobs, provided relief to struggling states to prevent layoffs, and made investments to put people back to work, rebuilding and renovating roads, bridges, schools, and hospitals. i realize that none of this is much comfort for those who are out of work or struggling. when we receive our monthly jobs report next week, it is likely to show that we're co

us. coming up, there has been a lot of talk recently about teachable moments in the gates-crowley controversy. but, first, the entire health care debate with s. one big learning opportunity for the american people and the politicians who are supposed to be representing us. that's the subject of this evening's talking points memo. when barack obama and the democrats swept into office in november, they did so on this nebulous promise of change and a desire to remake america. republicans were told by the elites on the right and the left, that they were on the verge of becoming a permanent minority party if they didn't moderate their views and, frankly, become more relevant. the country was moving, you z away from the old ideals of reagan conservatism and so should the g.o.p. well, smart conservatives weren't buying this. they said look, wait and see what this crowd does with the country, then talk to me about moving to the left. well, americans have seen now seven months of far left government in action. what's that mean? massive spending programs, washington's takeover of the auto c

? because we want to show that we are linked together and have a common message. to use that as an example, as an area where we can assist in helping create a civilian law enforcement presence that would take the place of a military presence, particularly in certain parts of the country. perhaps a more direct example is mexico, where congress actually appropriated money. it is called the merida initiative, to be used in conjunction with the federal government of mexico to buy equipment, and importantly, to train civilian law enforcement. i want to just pause a moment on this. our ability as a nation to work with other countries on having not just a law enforcement but justice systems that are civilian in nature as opposed to military, i think is very, very important. that is one of the things we have expertise in within the department: security, particularly when you are talking about how to set up a port of entry. how do you run it? what does it look like? what kinds of technology should be in place? what have we found that works and does not work? what kind of training do you need to hav
